Legacy Track of the Week: Rapper Big Pooh - Big Trouble Little Child
“My momma say she tired, she done taking care of grown men, we all got a choice and she voice hers, grab a couple furs hit the back door watch me run into this world of sin, Martin had a dream, Huey had a vision, neither factored into my decision, no religion just a factor of some long division, out hustle any muscle to complete the mission” Sometime last week North Carolina’s own Rapper Big Pooh dropped a 7 track EP and it’s perfect… not too short, not too long… but just right… and following a beautifully soulful instrumental the next record is the toughest record, where this legendary artist best known as ⅓ of Little Brother delivers his best solo work since Sleepers.
Uncle Murda - Rap Up 2016
“***** in Paris, Kanye, Jay Z, ***** in paris robbed Kim K, B, Ye mad he ain't got a call from Jay Z, Jay like ****** get robbed every day, B, J. Cole kicked you while you was down, he knows controversy sells, he got an album out now (False Prophets), damn, Ye, the people don't trust you, Bush don't like black people, but you think Donald Trump do” Uncle Murda rips off the best year-in-review track in recent memory, and even disses Mad Skillz officially bringing this tradition full circle… Murda is perfect for this however and this one is flames 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Rapper Big Pooh - Cliffnotes
“Them boys on the corner like a father, figure I’d try an author, the game that we played no offers, just deals” smh 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 I miss the LB/JL era… but Pooh definitely still in his bag…
Rapper Big Pooh - In Memorium
“This is memory of… you couldn’t dream it how you lived it, since a kid they all saw that you were gifted, fast track love to love you keep the winning coming, they provide you what you want, weed money women, down for anything, that’s on everything, you don’t have to worry, just like Mary sang, goin Pro that’s another level, it’s all coming at you fast flirtin with the Devil” classic Pooh in story mode and this man is criminally underrated, put some respect on his name in 2017 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Lloyd Banks - Campaign & Caviar
“The last guy only put a ring on your eyes, that ain't your test but in years in the disguise, your future's faded now your purpose is getting blurry, feeling certain fury, love shots fly” Banks continues his #BlueFriday series and drops a feel good track right on time for the new year... as is always the case with Banks the content is deep and introspective, and this time it’s over a nice instrumental provided by Mr. Authentic.
Dave East - What A Year (EASTMIX)
“Complexion mocha, inner section with smokers, face mean I bet you ***** never approach her, told the homie I had to kill it for the culture, I come to complement not insult ya, I can coach ya, give you the play it's hard to give you a day, couple hours blowing sour you know I'm not finna stay” Dave East over the classic D’Angelo Lady instrumental famously produced by the legendary singer/producer Raphael Saadiq, and although East has lyrics for days on this remix… you’re probably better off just sticking to the original…
Tyga ft Kanye West - Feel Me
“There's levels to my retail, the devil's in the detail, ***** be typin' hard as hell, goin' heavy metal on the email, ***** be so emo, catch feelings like a female, get quiet as a church mouse, phone soundin' like a seashell, ***** get so choked up, I had to bring back the Spreewells” Nevermind that this Kanye verse is the definition of hypocrisy… it’s still kinda decent… and although Tyga appropriately gets flack for his entire career… I’m actually not mad at this at all… this is actually the first collaboration between in laws Tyga and Kanye where both artists actually rap… and honestly this is exactly what it’s supposed to be…
Fabolous & Trey Songz - Use’ta this
“You think livin' my dream came over night, baby, like I ain't had chicken wings over rice, baby, I just need me somebody to blow the dice, baby, but do you take a bad bitch over a nice lady? can't say they ain't worth it, just overpriced maybe, can't really tell if she ride, I drove it twice maybe, that ass do turn heads like poltergeist, baby, know she put it in her mouth, that overbite crazy” On New Years Eve long time collaborators Fab & Trey Songz released Trappy New Years… and as the title would suggest it’s really nothing to write home about… all the same this Drake/2Chainz remix is one of the strongest on the tape, as this instrumental always deserved better and Fab comes correct on it
Fabolous & Trey Songz ft MIKExANGEL - Pick Up The Phone
“I got that sushi and soy for you, I heard that he been avoidin' you, call me and I'll fill a void for you, I got places to enjoy with you, roll it up and smoke a joint with you, I know ***** disappointed you…” Typical Loso & Trigga Tremaine bars over one of the most enjoyable ‘trap’ records of the year...
Fabolous & Trey Songz - Keys to the Street
“Look, you wanna be on your feet or you cool with bein' a leach?, not tryna be on repeat, not tryna be here and preach, you tryna be out and eat or you tryna be on a leash? If you gonna be in the streets, focus on bein' a Meech” Another fly remix and they both lace this 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
